Do you have an idea for a Mobile Application for Windows Phone? Would you like advanced technical training and troubleshooting support from technical experts to help get you started on your application?

Canada's Technology Triangle .NET User Group is hosting a full day Mobile + Cloud Application Workshop for local area .NET Developers. The first part of the workshop will consist of presentations on Windows Phone and Azure, to enhance your knowledge base and equip you with the skills that you can then apply in an afternoon of hands-on application development supported by technology experts.

If you are a .NET Developer, or Student, with some base knowledge of Windows Phone and Azure and are looking to grow your skills in this area, then this is event is for you! Seats are limited so be sure to register to reserve your spot!

Note:  In order to participate in the workshop, you will need to bring your own PC running Windows 7 or Windows Vista. We also highly encourage you to download the tooling for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Azure in advance of the workshop; otherwise you will be spending much of your time downloading and installing the tools during the workshop itself.

Session Description

8:30AM – 9:00AM



9:00AM – 10:45AM

Push Notification Services and Live Tiles – Your Apps Want Them (and so do your App’s Users)

While Push Notifications are not new to smartphone platforms, Windows Phone’s unique tile start menu paradigm lends itself to truly rich notification scenarios that you as a developer can take advantage of in your apps. From Raw Notifications to Toast Notifications to Tile Notifications to Back-of-Tile Notifications, you have the ability to truly drive a complete and enriching experience for your app and drive more attention to it by users. In this session you will learn how to take advantage of the Push Notification Service capabilities within the Windows Phone platform and under which scenarios each service makes sense.

10:45AM – 11:00AM



11:00AM – 12:00PM

Extending Capabilities with Windows Azure

In this session, you will learn how the Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone makes it easy to extend the capabilities of your Windows Phone 7.5 applications by leveraging the cloud services running in Windows Azure. The session will cover the foundations of Windows Azure compute, storage, authentication and authorization, and other platform services.

12:00PM – 12:45PM



12:45PM – 4:00PM
